Expect poor service with great food
Submitted Saturday, November 27, 2010 - 2:01pm [Dine in]

The food in this place is excellent! One of the few Indian restaurants I have found in the lower mainland that will make my meal "extra spicy" since I am not Indo-Canadian! Usually I get served a "sort of" spicy dish when I ask for "hot", but not here! They always ramp up the heat for me when I ask and I love it!
Service, unfortunately, is a lost cause. They just don't seem to really want people to dine in - takeout is a booming business for them and the dine in crowd seems to be a nuisance for them. Servers are slow, you have to ask for most things twice before you get them, and you often have to get up and walk to the kitchen to find them since they spend no time out on the floor!
The decor is not great, and the tv on the wall usually has someone's wedding reception video running. Not exactly entertainment.
Do yourself a favour and call them to order takeout. you will love the food! Just don't put yourself through the agony of dealing with the poor service for dine in meals.

Failing grade!

Was always pleased with the food & service when Nikos owned the place. Since he sold it, both have been hit & miss, at best. On our last visit (yes, it will be the LAST time we ever eat here) it hit an alltime low.
Visited on a Thursday evening and arrived at 5:30. Restaurant was not busy, but still had to stand in front hallway for almost 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. It then took another 5 minutes for someone to come over and seat us - despite all the empty tables that were available!
We were taken to the little raised area to the side of the bar and squeezed into a tiny corner behind four very large folks occupying the adjacent table. They couldn't/wouldn't move their chairs in towards their own table so we had to be acrobats to get into our seats - why, when so many other tables were available was this where we had to be seated? Also, there was a strong smell of bathroom deodorizer in the area. not very appetizing!
Our drink order was taken and arrived promptly. Unfortunately, my wineglass came with a large smear of red lipstick on the rim. Server was unfazed when I pointed this out to her - she seemed to wonder why I wouldn't drink from a dirty glass! I suspect she took my wine glass back and just wiped the lipstick off because the new glass was smudgy around the edges. Yuck!
We ordered Souvlaki - hubby had beef, I had chicken. Beef was gristly, chewy, and overdone - not a pleasant experience at all. Chicken was so dry it was like eating sawdust. Rice was cold and clumpy. Potato was only partly cooked - still hard in the center. Greek salad was mostly soggy, as if it had been sitting for a day or so before being served. Waitress did not come back to ask how our food was after serving it- she probably couldn't be bothered trying to manouver by that table of large folks either!
When she finally picked up our barely eaten dinners, she didn't even ask if we had a problem with the food. We had to inform her that the meal was almost inedible. She said sorry, and left with our plates. She came back a few minutes later with the free dessert and was quick to let us know that she put a little extra on the plate because of the problem with dinner! The extra teaspoonful did not make up for both of us still being hungry!
Nikos would have come out personally to check and see if we liked our meal. If there had been a problem, he would have made sure it was fixed. Here, no one seemed to care. We couldn't eat the lousy meal and we were billed for it with no discount for the inedible food.
That's it - we won't be back unless the restaurant gets different owners & management who actually care about the customers and have a clue about what good food is.
I'd give this place a D- if I had to grade it!

Disappointing
Submitted Friday, December 18, 2009 - 5:36pm [Dine in]

Had eaten in this restaurant about two years ago & found it to be a pleasant and somewhat upscale dining experience for South Delta. As a result, I was pleased when my husband took me there to celebrate my birthday. We went early on a quiet Tuesday evening at the beginning of December. We were seated in a nearly empty restaurant (2 other tables and one of them was just paying and leaving). So service should NOT have been an issue - but it was. Our server seated us and then disappeared for 10 minutes, did not offer to take our drink order or anything. We noticed the menu was no longer as upscale as it used to be - it's more in line with the pub next door now. Too bad. Server reappeared to seat another table and on the way back by us asked if we wanted anything?!? We said we were ready to order and this seemed to fluster her so she said she would be right back. 10 minutes later, she's finally back! She starts by telling us she's new. We were to hear this MANY times during the evening!! I ordered a glass of wine from the wine list and she immediately indicated she didn't know what that was since she was only a beer drinker herself. Great. I had to point out the wine I wanted on the list and she seemed to finally take note. We ordered appies and entrees, a Caesar salad and the Duck Breast for me, Scallops and a Gorgonzola Peppercorn Ribeye Steak for hubby. Our drinks finally showed up, after two more tables were brought in, seated and served THEIR drinks first! We did not even get the basket of bread that showed up on all the other tables when they were seated, nor was it offered. Appies showed up, and were unremarkable at best. Drinks were both empty by this time, but waitress simply grabbed the plates and headed out without asking if we wanted another. Meals did not show up for almost 20 more minutes, and when she put the plates down (forgetting who had ordered what and telling us,yet again, that she was new) we immediately saw that the order was wrong. My duck breast seemed fine, but hubby received a prime rib dinner. Not what he ordered. When we pointed this out to server, since she didn't notice, we were once again told she was new, and she would take it back and go check with the chef. As I sat with my rapidly cooling dinner in front of me, my husband urged me to start since it can't take long to get his steak. Wrong. He sat and watched me try to stall as long as I could while waiting for his meal, which took 20 more minutes! Waitress stopped by a couple more times to tell us she was new, to offer to get him soup while he was waiting, and finally brought a bread basket!! His dinner showed up just as I finished the last of mine, which by then was ice cold. Very poor service - he should have had his re-order go right to the front of the line in the kitchen but it obviously did not. So much for eating our dinners together! I nibbled at the remains of the bread basket (that we had to ask for while waiting for his meal) while hubby ate his entree. The other server in the restaurant (who was apparently TRAINING ours!)came over and stated that because of the problem, we could have free desserts. Hardly made up for the poor service so far. Then our server comes over and announces that the chef who makes dessert isn't in, so several items aren't available. We tried two items that were "specials" - a gingerbread type cake with caramel sauce and a pumpkin ice cream cake. Both were bland and uninteresting. The other server then came over again, this tme with our bill, and indicated that she had taken a whole 15% off. Any other restaurant that had messed up this badly would have taken off one or both meals as an apology, but this was clearly all we were getting. My birthday meal out was disgraceful, and we will not be back. Reasons: Poor Service and a lackluster menu with mediocre food. Note to owners: make sure your servers are educated about the menu and capable of doing the job before setting them loose on your paying customers. It's the least you can do!
